Burnout to Bliss is an awakening experience that occurred over two years, 1989-1991. Dr. Young’s transforming journey from Burnout to Bliss is told in a series of stories, each emphasizing a particular concept — from the madness of extreme BURNOUT to regaining lost confidence and self-esteem (CYCLING in the CITY) to surrendering in faith for the remaining 18 months when she had to leave her sanctuary with only the balance of one small paycheck (2 Years 1 Paycheck 0 Plans — a story of healing).
Restored My Faith, illustrates how “it’s never just one thing” when our life falls apart, and we break down. It relates some of the psychotic episodes the author experienced and the clumsy, destructive steps she took to survive. Most importantly, it shows how real healing began when she camped with Indian shamans in Mexico, where she overcame her fear when a desert lizard restored her faith. (December 2016)
Book 2, CYCLING in the CITY — How I Got My Confidence Back relates the first actual break-away from her job to start her journey of recovery in California where she rode a bicycle daily to recover her lost self-esteem and confidence. This was a baby-step, leaving her job to live with a friend: a sanctuary. Getting her confidence back prepared her for the drastic surprise that followed. (February 2017)
Book 3, 2 Years 1 Paycheck 0 Plans — a story of healing, relates the author’s story of complete surrender, trusting that her needs would be met just as they were for that desert lizard. It’s about letting go of control and following inspired guidance to pursue unknown paths, starting with her trip to Mexico, where she camped with shamans. Book 3 takes her to, Canada where she was on her own, and no one was coming to save her. (March 2018)
